Parakram Diwas 2021: Inspiring Quotes And Slogans Of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose

Every year the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose is observed on 23 January. However, this year there's going to be a slight change in the celebration as Indians will be observing the day as Parakram Diwas. This has come into effect after the Government of India declared the same. The Union Ministry of Culture made the announcement that the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose will now be observed as Parakram Diwas in India.

"The people of India fondly remember Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's unparalleled contribution to this great nation in his 125th birth anniversary. The Government of India has decided to celebrate the 125th birth anniversary year of Netaji beginning from January 2021 in a befitting manner at the national and international level," was quoted by the Union Ministry of Culture.

The citizens of our country have welcomed this decision and so does the grandnephew of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. However, he thinks that the day could have been observed as 'Deshprem Diwas' as he says that Netaji was an ardent patriotic who loved his motherland more than anything.

Well, today i.e., on 23 January 2021, the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, we are here to share some of the inspiring quotes and slogans given by Bose himself. These quotes and slogans will inspire you to lead a life of patriotism and serve the nation selflessly. Read on:
